July 2013 Gavage [Tasty China II, Taqueria el Rey, Chops, Paella, Seven Lamps]

August 9, 2013

  Yeah, I’m still here, still hungry, cooking and eating. Busy with life and a pending addition to our family, which we tried to fire-bomb out of Katie with Sichuan cuisine at Peter Cheng’s Tasty China II. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve double-dared my digestive system with Sichuan food, and TC did not […]

June Gavage [La Tavola, King & Duke, Heirloom BBQ, Miller Union, General Muir]

July 10, 2013

  Not a lot of blog posts these days, I’m traveling a lot, but I’m still eating. Some of it in town too. I have travel posts to Durham, Raleigh, Vegas, and Japan in the works. I wonder if anyone likes those? I do. I go back and look at them when I want to […]

Gavage [Tampa, Asheville, AJ's, Heirloom, Calle Latina, Miso Izakaya]

April 12, 2013

Been a while since I’ve had a Gavage post, in which I dump a bunch of content not necessarily appropriate for a single topic post. You could also call it the “hey, look what I’ve been doing” series, or the “yeah, I eat and drink a lot and my doctor said I may have a […]

Favorite { Dining – Drinking – Cooking } of 2012

January 3, 2013

Happy New Year! 2012 was another big year of living, and though I’m not as diligent with the old blog anymore, my appetite remains. As in years past, I wanted to put together a few thoughts and photos from some of my favorite dining, cooking, and drinking moments from the year that was.

Porchetta. Pasta. Duck. Beans. Seamless Ravioli.

November 1, 2012

Dude and I cooked a meal. I bought a pork shoulder and whole belly from Riverview Farms. Above, in perhaps my manliest photo ever (note – blow torch, chef’s knife, hack saw, and beer bottle), I butchered the shoulder. He/she will never dance again. Dude’s kids were appalled.

Eating on Vacation – Glacier National Park & Homer, Alaska

August 29, 2012

The trend of no Atlanta related posts continues, so here are photos from my trips to Glacier National Park and Homer, Alaska. But I should be able to whip up some content this weekend, with trips to Sushi Huku, the Speakeasy Cocktail festival, a fish fry, a suckling pig cook out, and a college football […]

Sunday Sauce

April 30, 2012
Thumbnail image for Sunday Sauce

Quick post – My brother Thomas and I cooked up an Italian feast yesterday, probably the most excellent use of a Sunday possible. Sunday sauce (or gravy, if you lean that way) was the star – a huge, slow simmering pot of sauce, filled with meat treasures. This batch had the full monty – Italian […]

Here and There

January 23, 2012

I’ve been traveling all over the place, for work and for pleasure, hence the lack of restaurant and cooking project posts in January. Once I got back from Savannah yesterday afternoon, I spent the rest of the day cooking and watching football, and it was pure pleasure spending some time in the dojo. As I’ve […]
